Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-7594) Apache Mail blacklisted by SenderScore (aka "ReturnPath")

Herbert Duerr created INFRA-7594:

             Summary: Apache Mail blacklisted by SenderScore (aka "ReturnPath")
                 Key: INFRA-7594
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7594
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Herbert Duerr

Many Email providers use the service of https://www.senderscore.org/ named "ReturnPath" in
their fight against spam. If an IP address is blacklisted by senderscore then all the recipients
don't even get to see the mails from blacklisted spam servers.

For some reason hermes.apache.org got blacklisted three times in the last few days. One can
check whether it is currently blacklisted using their https://www.senderscore.org/blacklistlookup/
page. It is possible to request the blacklist to be removed using their https://www.senderscore.org/rtbl/
page, but it seems that hermes.apache.org is sometimes abused to send spam mail.

Someone with root karma on hermes.apache.org needs to work with them to resolve this spam->blacklist
issue so that users get their mail more reliably.
